consideration, the main way to change the rules comes from oregon democrat jeff merkley. if you want to filibuster, you can't say 60 vote rule, too bad. can't vote on that. you actually have to go down and hold the floor and talk and talk and talk and talk all night and for days and for weeks. you need to work for it. there is merit to this idea. it would make filibusters harder on the minority. it would make them more transparent to the public. it would make them less likely on popular bills, but it wouldn't reverse the transformation of the senate into a place where 60 votes required to get anything done. so there is a proposal that personally i like better. frankly, it's kind of an ingenious proposal. it recognizes that there is general value in protecting the minority's right to be heard. but in order to protect that right, you don't need to make every vote a 60-vote supermajority. this proposal would in one fell swoop end the 60-vote senate, but it would preserve the interests of lengthy debate. the idea doesn't come from outside group or some young radical. it comes from a long

: next up is jeff in pennsylvania on our line for republicans. jeff, you are on the line with the "washington journal." caller: i am in massachusetts, not pennsylvania. i do not think you will get a compromise from anyone unless we go over the cliff. i am a point of getting a big deal done. i am and republican, but obama won. democrats controlled to search. you have to give them a little bit. we are not going to get anything done. he wants to wait another year and revisit this. he already proposed we wait another year. nothing will get done in the next congress if there is another cliff coming up a year from now. let it go over the cliff. if i were a representative for a senator, i would go home so they go into effect forever. we have some trouble with his innocence. let it go over and let all the serious players in congress get a deal done. when people start playing the best paying a lot more money and moving their defense -- start paying a lot more money and moving their defense contracts, people will pay attention. guest: this is the interesting thing to me about the a
. jeff, first to you, once the supreme court makes that final decision in the spring, maybe by june at the end of the term, we will know whether or not same sex marriage will be legal, not only in those states like new york state or maryland or iowa where it is legal, but throughout the united states. >> it is a possibility, there are limited possibilities. the court specifically took nose in this case, whether the question of whether the people defending the law in california even have the right to be in court. do they have standing. they could simply rule that the people defending the law don't have standing. that wouldn't even deal with the issue of the constitutionality of same sex marriage. that would be a procedural ruling that would allow the court to duck the issue of is there a constitutional right for gay people to get married. so it's a possility that all 50 states could be ordered to have same sex marriage, but it's also a possibility that the court could duck that issue all together. >> obviously we have to wait to see what the nine justices decide. gloria, you've done
in the senate race? you have jeff flake, a longtime incumbent who has a track record, an interesting truckload on the immigration issue. talk about the way latinos voted in there and the way immigration played. >> you. well, to answer your question why did flake when, it really boils down to name recognition. flake as you indicated, is a well-known name in arizona politics. serving sense, you know, a decade, and the feminine goes way back. his heritage goes way back to the pioneers. that's another thing, factor to keep in mind just the level of enthusiasm among mormon voters were voting for jeff flake but also get mitt romney on the ballot, a mormon candidate. to get high levels of enthusiasm among mormon, the mormon electorate to vote for the two candidates, and that was a significant hurdle for carmona, and obama's campaign to overcome in arizona. >> let's delve into that really briefly because it seems like there is, it seems like there's a potential path for victory for republicans that doesn't necessarily involve latino voters if they can find other ways to tap in and expand their bases.
them. and that is why i want to bringing in jeff gardere to talk about how one explains this tragedy to children. he's a clinical psychologist. before we talk about this explaining this to a child, we've been talking a lot about gun laws in this country and about somehow making sure that the -- they don't get in the hands of the wrong people. i think it's just as important to talk about mental health, a subject that's been coming up over and over and over again. so where do we start here then? because i guess is nebulous a right, right word or complex is probably the right word when it comes to dealing with mental health issues. >> yes, it is very complex. and this brings up a very excellent point and i'm so glad, don, that you're asking this question. you had a previous guest who said look, when it comes to background checks, we have to look at minnesota mull facic personality inventory which gives us a broad spectrum as to who the person is, some of the psychological projective tests and so on. he is right on with that because right now one of the only questions asked when you're g
.5%. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to jeff. >> brown: george washington famously described the senate as "the saucer that cools the tea," a body designed to soothe "hot" legislation that emerged from the house of representatives. but as congressional correspondent kwame holman reports, some senators have gotten pretty steamed over a proposed change to how their chamber operates. >> holman: a sign of the holiday season-- the u.s. capitol christmas tree arrived in washington on monday. but behind the festive scene outside, there was a partisan war raging inside on the floor of the senate. the combatants-- democratic majority leader harry reid and republican minority leader mitch mcconnell. >> americans believe congress is broken. once again, the only ones who disagree are mitch mcconnell and the republican party. >> i've never said the senate's working fine. i think the senate's been disastrously run for the last two years. >> the american people know, democrats and republicans, that this place isn't working and there needs to be some changes so that we can proceed
's the important thing to understand. what har ray reid and especially younger senators, people like jeff merkley from oregon, are proposing to restore the filibust filibuster. it's a very simple proposal. they it want to bring back the filibuster as it existed in "mr. smith goes to washington." they want it it to be like jimmy stewart where they had to go to the floor and stand on your principles. now, unfortunately, the filibuster is usually used secretly behind closed doors to stop debate to prevent us from even having a vote. that has nothing to do with what americans understand as a filibuster and there is simply no reason to allow the abuses to continue. >> well, it means that if they were to filibuster, they have to go to the floor and do as you say, "mr. smith goes to washington," and talk endlessly until some conclusion. what do the changes mean for democratic bills, you think? >> it could mean a lot, because many of the bills that democrats have proposed have majority support. they can win in the senate. the problem is they can't get to the 6 o votes that would be required to break a fi
